We all know that an infographic is a great way to get fast information on complex topics, in this case DevOps!
At its core, the idea behind DevOps is very simple: to tear down the walls between Operations and Development in order to create a rapid, automated process that enables the fastest possible development of software. In practice this means that Operations and Development engineers are jointly involved in the entire software lifecycle, from design through the development process to support.
Wikipedia has a nice definition for it: It is “a practice that emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other IT professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes. It aims at establishing a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software, can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably.” You need insights into applications, interfaces and technologies to foster a culture of collaboration between developers and operations people who have been increasingly separated in the past couple of years.
